This is the end result of the photo below but I’ll give you the stages in two more photos and a little something to accompany it.

Wind blowing through the dunes
Disturbing the peace of winter’s
Settled sand combing the weeds
Sleek to its desire inviting the
Lovers of a wild coast at its best

P.s My apologies to all my followers for not getting back this week as quickly as planned with the restoration of my photos but I hope Thursday will be a relatively calmer day to work hard at it…
Thank you for being patient 🙂

This is a very easy recipe for doughnuts which my kids love in the cozy winter weekends.
It is totally natural. The photos are with white Spelt flour but I did it in wholemeal
and they confessed preferring it, which is not an easy thing for them to do 🙂

The recipe is the same one as the chocolate roll I previously posted, so I put it back in
this one.

Enjoy and let me know if you tried it out!

This recipe is not one of my easiest ( I had to let the dough rise ) but it’s nourishing, it’s a good
unsweetened chocolate roll for recess at school or at work. All in all, I’d say it’s
a recipe worth doing every once in a while.
I use the bread machine on dough program, to mix it and let it rise. It’s quicker, but you can do it
the ” longer “Way the only difference with the machine is, that it requires dried yeast.

Enjoy the experience!

5. 4 tbsp rice malt ( honey or any other natural sweetener, or 3 tbsp sugar )

Method
——

1.Take the risen dough roll it out.

2.Use a cup to cut out the doughnut shape.
3.Use a bottle top to make a whole in the middle
if you desire that shape.
I do some with and some without.
4.Fry it in a little pan with about 6/7 cm = 2.3 or 2.7 inches,
olive oil or any other kind on a small fire.
Do not leave the oil too long on high ( the first one still goes )
even with a small fire as
it will brown too quickly and leave it raw inside.
5.Pour rice syrup on top, honey, unsweetened jam which you can put in by making
a small hole in the fried doughnut without a hole, or any other sweetener on the
doughnut and enjoy it.

For the ones who use sugar you can sprinkle icing sugar on top it makes it look very
decorative.
For the calorie counters, there is a possibility to put it in the oven and
bake. It is not the same taste but it is still delicious!

But mainly use your imagination and do what you fancy doing 🙂
